Unfortunately for David Cage and Quantic Dream's Detroit: Become Human, the game has failed to hold the first berth on UK's physical sales chart, unsurprisingly losing ground to the World Cup craze-induced sales of EA Sports' FIFA 18.

Detroit: Become Human had a 46 drop in sales since its first week, although this is standard for second week sales, especially for singleplayer titles. Quantic Dream have already said that the game is their most successful one to date, so there will be no tears for Cage and Co.

FIFA 18, on the other hand, has reaped every possible benefit from the football craze brewing around the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Russia. A bunch of accompanying discounts and the free World Cup update saw the game's sales climb by 21 percent and yank the first spot from Cage's hands.

Interestingly, Far Cry 5 has had a good week in every respect, with it 36 per cent sales increase resulting in Ubisoft's game climbing back to second spot. Sony's record-breaking machine God of War saw but a 19 per cent dip, which is again a pretty good result and Cory and the gang's game now sits in fourth.

Sega Mega Drive Classics is the highest scoring new entry in the top 10 and the game sits fifth, which happened to beat Capcom's Street Fighter: 30th Anniversary Collection by mere 600 units. Overwatch: Game of The Year Edition sales were boosted by 30 per cent, which wasn't enough to move Blizzard's game from seventh place.

After quite an impressive start, State of Decay 2 dropped to eighth place while Dark Souls Remastered suffered a 65 per cent on-week drop. Bethesda's hype and the announcement of the numerically-challenged franchise Fallout doesn't seem to have brushed off on Fallout, because the game dropped one spot and now sits in tenth.
